How 99.99 percent of 150,000 COVID-19 Patients survived

Not with anything that Tony Fauci recommended.

A doctor who has been offering free telehealth services to COVID-19 patients during the pandemic says that early treatment for COVID-19 works, claiming that he has a 99.99 percent survival rate.

This is from  Dr. Ben Marble, the founder of, an online medical consultation service. The treatment protocol consists of hydroxychloroquine, ivermectin, monoclonal antibodies, prednisone, and other low-cost generic drugs. They also prescribe vitamins D and C, and zinc.

In other words, stuff that Fauci’s Big Pharma cabal opposes because it can’t get rich from low-cost, widely available meds.

I, as a layman, don’t claim to know if this is correct. But I do believe in giving everyone a chance to argue his position. So, before anyone blasts off by criticizing the source, explain why the substance is wrong.

  • The lives that could have been saved by early treatment are criminal. That most of the medical establishment is complicit is frightening. That nobody will be brought to justice is even more criminal, and forbodes even more trouble.

    Of course, the various saints and tiraders on here will insist that there is no effective early treatment, completely ignoring anything outside the Media-Pharma-Government complex.

  • why is everything invested in the shot and nothing in medications? who is making money on this? always follow the money... on the plus side when our daughter had a bout of the big C she got oxygen and medications, the establishment would say she had a mild case because she got the jab...well she spent all last year working as a floor nurse at our local hospital before she got the jab...and yes, they had covid cases on the floor sometimes...this has been treated as "one size fits all" instead of tailoring the cure to the patient

  • 'Several telehealth companies are offering patients access to the controversial anti-parasite drug ivermectin, which is rumored by some groups to be an effective treatment for COVID-19, The Guardian reported Sept. 13.

    Five things to know:

    At the top of a Florida-based telehealth website, there is a bright orange banner that reads, "Looking for ivermectin? Click here." The website also assures patients that they have fast shipping and high-quality medications, according to the report.

    Misinformation online has fueled rumors that ivermectin can treat COVID-19, but physicians have said there is no evidence to back the claims. The CDC and FDA warned in August that COVID-19-positive patients should not use the drug.

    Some anti-vaccine activists are directing patients to telehealth providers that will offer up the drug, according to the report. At least three of these sites have ties to a right-wing political group, America's Frontline Doctors, according to The Guardian.

    Telehealth company MyFreeDoctor promotes ivermectin on its website. It was founded by America's Frontline Doctor's member Ben Marble, MD. SpeakWithAnMD is also frequently promoted on social media accounts that endorse ivermectin. It works in partnership with America’s Frontline Doctors and charges $90 for consultations.

    Stella Immanuel, MD, a member of America's Frontline Doctors, posted on her medical practice's Facebook page that they are getting more than 700 patients a day signing up for visits to get ivermectin, The Guardian reported.'

    Becker's Hospital Review

  • Dennis, I'm a layman too. But I research these claims. Why haven't you? The Epoch Times is a far-right publication which is the second biggest donor to Donald Trump's political machine. The American Journal of Medicine is not among the top-tier of medical journals. Try the New England Journal of Medicine and others that are if you want the most accurate information about Covid. Dr. Pierre Kory has been pushing ivermectin a drug used in humans who are infected with worms. The side effects of ivermectin are confusion, loss of control of body movements, weakness, low-blood pressure, seizures, gastric stress, dizziness, vision symptoms and rash. There is no real evidence it helps to prevent Covid. Matter of fact Kory himself got Covid despite taking ivermectin.

  • In reply to Aquinas wired:

    Dr. Peter McCullough(who is cited as Dr. Kory is in your link) has claimed that the vaccine contains microchips to track people globally. Off the wall would you say?

  • In reply to Aquinas wired:

    Pray, tell us. What is in the shots? I'll wait...

  • In reply to Richard Davis:

    "The Pfizer-BioNTech COVID-19 vaccine is made of the following ingredients:

    mRNA – Also known as messenger ribonucleic acid, mRNA is the only active ingredient in the vaccine. The mRNA molecules contain the genetic material that provide instructions for our body on how to make a viral protein that triggers an immune response within our bodies. The immune response is what causes our bodies to make the antibodies needed to protect us from getting infected if exposed to the coronavirus.

    There are rumors that mRNA vaccines will alter our DNA because the RNA molecule can convert information stored in DNA into proteins. That’s simply, not true. It’s critical to note that the mRNA vaccines never enter the nucleus of the cell, where our DNA is stored. After injection, the mRNA from the vaccine is released into the cytoplasm of the cells. Once the viral protein is made and on the surface of the cell, mRNA is broken down and the body permanently gets rid of it, therefore making it impossible to change our DNA.

    Lipids – The following lipids are in the new COVID vaccine. Their main role is to protect the mRNA and provide somewhat of a “greasy” exterior that helps the mRNA slide inside the cells.
    (2-hexyldecanoate), 2 [(polyethylene glycol)-2000]-N,N-ditetradecylacetamide
    1,2-Distearoyl-snglycero-3- phosphocholine

    Salts – The following salts are included in the Pfizer vaccine and help balance the acidity in your body.
    potassium chloride
    monobasic potassium phosphate
    sodium chloride
    dibasic sodium phosphate dihydrate

    Sugar – Basic table sugar, also known as sucrose, can also be found in the new COVID vaccine. This ingredient helps the molecules maintain their shape during freezing."

  • In reply to Aquinas wired:

    And do you know what your immune system does in reaction to the spiked proteins constantly being made? No. You don't and neither does Pfizer or Moderna. But there is growing evidence that it creates an unregulated immune response which can lead to serious organ damage. Feel free to inject as many of the Trump shots as you wish.

  • In reply to Aquinas wired:

    I don't have time or the inclination to address every point. But here's a response to the Ivermectin argument:

    "Moderate-certainty evidence finds that large reductions in COVID-19 deaths are possible using ivermectin. Using ivermectin early in the clinical course may reduce numbers progressing to severe disease. The apparent safety and low cost suggest that ivermectin is likely to have a significant impact on the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic globally."

    Right, it's just one meta analysis. I don't claim, as you do that it is wrong (based on what?) and therefore should be hidden. Let the chips fall....

  • In reply to Dennis Byrne:

    I don't claim anything of the sort. The medical experts claim that ivermectin, a medicine used on animals to treat worm infestation, is ineffective and not safe to treat Covid-19.

    What is a meta analysis? The epidemiologists do lab experiments to test the vaccines they are developing.

  • In reply to Dennis Byrne:

    The study cited above I believe has been withdrawn by the authors and that they have now concluded that Ivermectin has no effect on Covid. A meta analysis as used in the study cited above combines results across several different studies. The largest studies in terms of sample size and measured effect are given greater weight in developing the estimated effect across all studies. In this case, the two largest studies that also had the largest effect on Covid were found to contain fraudulent data and methodological errors (one in that hotbed of research in Eygpt and another in Brazil/Argentina). See the early expression of concern in the Jounal that published the article cited above:
    mpact on the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic globally.

    The Editor of the American Journal of Therapeutics hereby issues an Expression of Concern for Bryant A, Lawrie TA, Dowswell T, Fordham EJ, Mitchell S, Hill SR, Tham TC. Ivermectin for Prevention and Treatment of COVID-19 Infection: A Systematic Review, Meta-analysis, and Trial Sequential Analysis to Inform Clinical Guidelines. Am J Ther. 2021;28(4): e434-e460.

    The decision is based on the evaluation of allegations of inaccurate data collection and/or reporting in at least 2 primary sources of the meta-analysis performed by Mr. Andrew Bryant and his collaborators.1,2 These allegations were first made after the publication of this article. The exclusion of the suspicious data appears to invalidate the findings regarding the ivermectin's potential to decrease the mortality of COVID-19 infection.2 The investigation of these allegations is incomplete and inconclusive at this time.

    This Expression of Concern does not imply that the methodology used by Mr. Andrew Bryant and his collaborators was incorrect. The use of summary data published by others is a generally accepted approach in biomedical metanalytic research.1

    The American Journal of Therapeutics is steadfastly committed to upholding truth in science and the highest standards in publication ethics. We will update our decision regarding this work should more information become available.

    American Journal of Therapeutics. 29(2):e232, March/April 2022."

  • In reply to Aquinas wired:

    Ivermectin has a better safety record than Aspirin. So, if a person is ill with Covid and his doctor prescribes Ivermectin, you will say that the doctor does not know as much as you and that it should not be prescribed off-label? If a person's doctor prescribes IVM don't you think that the doctor will know the possible side effects and tell the person to watch for them? Currently, the official position of the CDC and other non-clinical doctors and bureaucrats is that there is no early treatment available and a person with early Covid is supposed to go home and wait until seriously ill. The risk/reward ratio of taking a medicine that has been in use for over 40 years beats the risk/reward of going home and waiting to become seriously ill and possibly dying.

  • In reply to Richard Davis:

    Then take an aspirin instead. Unless you have parasitic worms.

  • In reply to Aquinas wired:

    Actually, aspirin is recommended for inflammation control, along with other OTC and prescribed medications. You're too clever by half. Again, feel free to get booster upon booster of the Trump shot. It's all experimental, and you can be a Big Pharma guinea pig.

  • "Mike says he was struggling with COVID-19 when he felt his breathing getting worse. He did not want to go to the Veterans Affairs hospital near his home, where he believed doctors might put him on a ventilator. And he knew they would not prescribe the treatment he really wanted: a drug called ivermectin.

    So in late July, Mike, who says he is a 48-year-old teacher and disabled veteran from New York state, contacted America’s Frontline Doctors (AFLD), a group he had been following on social media. AFLD has been a leading promoter of ivermectin, a medication typically used to treat parasitic worms in livestock, as a “safe and effective treatment” for COVID-19. Through its website, Mike says, he paid the group $90 for a telemedicine appointment with a doctor willing to prescribe the drug.

    A week later, he was still anxiously waiting for the consultation. Calls and emails to AFLD went unreturned, he says. Finally, he called his bank to report a fraudulent charge. “Not even an apology,” Mike, whom TIME is referring to using a pseudonym because of his concerns about his job, told TIME in an interview. 'This is absolutely nuts. This organization is not helping anyone but their pocketbooks.'

    Time Magazine

    AFLD stands for America's Frontline Doctors, the group co-founded by Dr. Kory

  • "Suspicion is immediately aroused when Merritt is identified as a member of “America’s Frontline Doctors,” a handful of conspiracy-minded physicians that include luminaries such as Dr. Stella Immanuel who alleges that alien DNA is being used in medical treatments and that researchers are working on a vaccine to prevent people from becoming religious. She also believes in a conspiracy by the “Illuminati” to destroy the world with abortion, gay marriage, and of all things, children’s toys. As far as gynecological diseases go, they can be caused by having sex with witches and demons that appear in dreams."
